I've always loved one particular song from the film Terms of Endearment. Unfortunately it's not the main theme, and iTunes doesn't have the full original soundtrack. The only place I've been able to find it is on Amazon, where it costs at least 28 bucks. While I have been rooting around for this song for years, I don't know if 30 dollars is really worth a cool song.
So my question is do you know of alternate sources for obscure music from movies? Ebay only has LP's and I don't use any illegal downloading programs-I access internet from a college campus and don't want to get busted.

3 things i didnt know:
1) getting a job might fuck up my fafsa even more than it already is, because i would have to report that i earned money
2) there are a good number of people who get into ivy league or else ivy league level colleges, yet dont make it into the uc system. my favorites: didnt get into ucla, but into stanford. didnt get into any uc school, even the new piece of shit one, but got into columbia. those guys must have a veery specific type of person thats "right for the school" because apparently intelligent involved and ingenuous just doesnt say "uc material". lolz.
3) i was actually extremely lucky to get out of new york on tuesday. we had about 3 more hours or else we would have been snowed in. while i initially thought that it would have been cool, but really, my mom would have been stressed about missing work, we would have stayed in a crappy airline sponsored hotel probably not in manhattan, we would have had to get on a really early flight, we wouldnt have had any freetime in the city to have more fun, and even if we did it would be miserable, crippling weather, plus we might have gotten caught waiting on the runway stuck in the airplane like some people were for 8 HOURS. whew. closer call than i even knew.
"It is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves from case to case, indescribably monotonous and unrenewed: it is shyness before any sort of new, unforeseeable experience with which one does not think oneself able to cope. But only someone who is ready for everything, who excludes nothing, not even the most enigmatical will live the relation to another as something alive."
guess who got into NYU. me! sweet chongas, i'm going to college! if i can pay for it, that is...but still, fuck yeah!
in precisely 11 days i plan on turning in my application to New York University.
i'm now a senior. i'm now a senior in high school. whoaaa muthas.
as a freshman i thought seniors meant you owned the world, but by now i realize its more about owning yourself.
so bottoms up, seniors!
i'm pretty flippin excited about the crap i'll be doing this summer. i have my passport, and theres just something about the names of certain places that make me want to go there tomorrow. names like europe as a whole. spain is a big one, and the philippines, and france. also brazil and fuji, and i've wanted to see new zealand since i was 6 years old and the paiki dance came to my neighborhood. its also on the top of my list to spend a year in africa during the peace corps. lol all these places i hear about in books, it makes me sad that my parents really arent the world traveling type. i havent even been to hawaii or the real mexico. but if money keeps my parents stateside, let alone the fact that they love american traveling more, its all good. maybe its better that i experience things as a young person, you never know.
unfortunately my plans to travel the us are a bit stagnated, because my two friends i plan to go with dont want to plan and one of them has a history of losing steam. i know i dont want to go alone, but if i have to drive by myself to new york city, so be it.
i find it funny that my reasons for doing things keep shifting, and when i look back at what originally drove me to take something on i cant believe i was so simpleminded and all around stupid. but such is life :)
two dreams i had last night:
in the first, i arrive in europe and realize i forgot my headphones. i
ask mr michaels if i can go get them and he tells me i wont be able to
see the sistene chapel. i open my unmbrella and mr michaels is turned
into dust and blows away. i come back home unbeknownst to my mom, who
after seeing me in my room asks why i'm at home. i tell her i forgot my
headphones, and in the middle of my explanation i realize i also forgot
the ipod itself. in looking for the ipod i find the battery charger for
it, and the adapter which lets me use european sockets, and my
toothbrush, and a whole bunch of things i would need had i stayed
there. i'm collecting the things in my room when i see the bed with a
lump under the sheets. i pull back the covers and see my suitcase with
all my clothes inside, waiting for me to remember them. all the clothes
are pink and white.
later on i'm in some kind of auditorium with a pool inside with ali and
tori, and some stuff i cant remember happens. As we're walking out,
tori convinces ali to take a sip of a clear drink, while tori drinks
out of a gold drink, and tori blows ali a kiss. they both flinch, and
all of a sudden they've switched bodies like Freaky Friday. tori's
body runs off with ali inside and ali's body (with tori inside) lets me
know who really is, which for some reason i believe immediately. we set
off to find tori's body. i ask her why she switched their bodies on
purpose and tori says she felt like doing it. somehow we end up
back in the auditorium where a boat is powered up, but not moving
forward, inside the pool. behind the boat is tijaan riding a wakeboard.
tori says she'd like to try it out and, like in real life, i'm
surprised and she says what she would say in real life, that it was
just something that looked like fun. suddenly we're outside
looking at a wall of vines, and tori in ali's body says that ali in
tori's body is just beyond the fence. we peer around and see a wedding
canopy and maxwell. we yell at max to get ali and realize she's the
bride in some sort of ritual. i ask if its something ali does normally
and tori shrugs. we then bring ali over and they drink from the clear
and gold drinks, then kiss like that movie Love Potion No.9.
they return to their bodies and then someone's mom shows up and just as
tori is about to get her to drink the clear liquid i slap it out of her
hands and tell her to stop fucking around. instead she picks up the
bottle and throws it in my face, then gulps down the gold. she then
moves in to kiss me, and just as she's about close enough my alarm
clock wakes me up.
